British policeman sacked for believing in psychics

Postby Nostradamus » 08 Dec 2009, 04:28

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/6549313/Police-worker-fired-for-backing-psychic-investigations-claims-religious-discrimination.html

The start of the article:
Alan Power, who has been a member of a Spiritualist church for 30 years, argues that his belief in the power of mediums should be placed on a par with more mainstream religious and philosophical convictions.

He has already secured a legal ruling that his principles are covered by laws designed to prevent religious discrimination in the workplace, and is now seeking to prove that they were the reason for his dismissal.

Mr Power's case follows a landmark ruling last month that environmental views should be considered equivalent to religious and philosophical beliefs, following a legal challenge by a green executive at a property firm.

i dont think he was sacked for believing in psychics..
more likely for trying to use them in criminal investigations

is not a problem what you do in your time off
just dont spend valuable resources (nor time) consulting leeches while you should be doing your police work

For every person who reads this valuable book there are hundreds of naïve souls who would prefer to have their spines tingled by a sensational but worthless potboiler by some hack journalist of the paranormal. You who now read these sentences join a small but wiser minority. Martin Gaardner (Psychology of the Psychic)
